More than 75,000 people came out Tuesday night for the kickoff of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, including many enthusiastic fans of the opening performer, Garth Brooks, and others who just really wanted a piece of fried cheesecake. No matter the reason they came, they all dressed for the occasion, from fringe to one serious fur coat.
